Question: Is it possible to independently control the dimmer’s level indicator from the level output (AKA relay)?
To clarify: I’d like to use the dimmer switch buttons to issue commands to the smart bulbs and the LED bar vertical level (not the brightness) to indicate the dimming level of the smart bulbs - without actually changing the voltage output of the switch. I know that disabling the relay (8x clicks of the scene button) is supposed to do this but that seems to just disable local control. So if i actually set the level of the switch to change the vertical LED bar, it also varies the voltage output.
Closest I can get is to leave the dimmer “level” at 100% but use software commands to control the bulbs - but this misrepresents the bulb brightness. I could just use an on/off switch, but the vertical LED bar is a visual signal to the user that the switch supports dimming - it would be great if it could represent the bulb brightness (without wiring the light to bypass the switch).
I’ve tried enabling the “Smart Bulb Mode” but that seems to have no affect (I also can’t find any documentation on it). I also tried the “Child Set Level” command but that doesn’t appear to have any affect. I might have missed something or perhaps this is fixed in a later firmware release.
I’m running the Hubitat C-5 with the official Inovelli drivers from 2020-09-16 and LZW31-SN firmware version 1.45.
Thanks in advance for the help.
